Family law

Family Lawyers are often engaged by a parent, grandparent, husband, wife or de facto spouse to assist in resolving post-separation legal issues. This can include their children’s living arrangements, child support, divorce and their property settlement. Family law disputes are emotional, confusing and stressful; especially when there are children involved. At Ward Keller we tailor our advice to suit your individual circumstances having regard to the impact of separation on your life. We are focussed on assisting you to resolve the issues in dispute with your former partner without the need to proceed to the Family Law Courts.

Family law is a specialist field, and Ward Keller’s dedicated family lawyers are skilled at guiding clients through the difficult period with practical, sensible and sensitive advice.

Our family law practice strongly promotes forms of alternative dispute resolution, including negotiation, mediation and arbitration. Many family law matters can be resolved harmoniously. However, we also assist clients who are in Court in relation to their property and/or children’s matters.

Ward Keller has experienced family lawyers in Darwin and Alice Springs, and our lawyers regularly visit our Palmerston and Katherine offices. We also provide advice and representation to clients in regional and remote areas, and can arrange telephone or video appointments.

Ward Keller’s family law team can assist you with all your family law needs, including:

  • Parenting Matters
  • Child Support Agreements
  • Property Settlements
  • Consent Orders
  • Divorce

You can speak with one of our experienced family lawyers, who will provide you with initial advice, information regarding ongoing costs and determine which of our team is best placed to assist you.

We understand that certainty about your legal costs is important, and we offer fixed fees for all family law matters. This assists in providing you with certainty about your legal costs.

We accept referrals from NT Legal Aid Commission and can also help you apply for Legal Aid. Find more information about NT Legal Aid Commission here.

To make the most of your initial consultation, please use our sophisticated online system to learn about how we can assist you, and, crucially, to provide us with some background information about your circumstances. This will enable us to meaningfully answer your questions, provide advice, and discuss your options.
